Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber add aggressive guitars to their considerable armory of instruments to create an album of striking power and subtlety. They give full reign to their heavy metal influences on songs such as "Vigilante" and "Division of Mind," with angry guitar riffs and live-sounding programmed drums. However, the band's characteristically dark synthesizer atmospherics are still present, on tracks such as "This Faith" and the haunting "Sex Offender." Lyrics focus mostly on societal ills and technological doomsday. The songwriting is strong, with solid choruses in the title track as well as the brilliantly apocalyptic "Surface Patterns. "Victim of a Criminal" is a bold merging of Front Line Assembly's sinister power with the vocals of rapper David Hansen of the band P.O.W.E.R. --Mark McCleerey

VERY BEST OF FLA
J. Prager | Cleveland, OH | 04/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I actually found this recording used and picked it up just because i thought the cover was so weird. After listening to it for years and years, this album has reached my top 20 albums of all time, across any genre. I love all kinds of music, and if i had to pick one industrial album to represent the genre, it would be this one. There is one song on this album that is hard to get into, I believe it is called victim of a criminal. The guitars provide a deep rhythmic feel to this music, and make it feel more complete and lush than many of their other recordings. People either love or hate this album, and I think it is just amazing. It is super hardcore, but also retains a great listenability, and shows off great songwriting ability. I can't say enough good things about this album."
FLA's Evolution of Sound Begins
Petar Vodogaz | Sydney, NSW Australia | 07/10/2005

"Front Line Assembly is the brainchild of two great musically minded men, Bill Leeb & Rhys Fulber. They have had a busy decade with this entity and their other great project Delerium, and their many side projects from the Vancouver studios. 'Millenium' is the latest album release from 1994 I have listened too and have been progressively purchasing all of FLA's albums. To date this is the best CD from them I have encountered.
In this album of 10 tracks, the old sounds of FLA have merged together and mixed with more metallic sounds with the bass guitars and robotic harsh vocals sung by Leeb. This makes for one very entertaining and a absolute friendly listening experience. Just like Delerium had evolved sound and lyrical wise, I feel that FLA is on a path of self-evolution for over time nothing can stay the same way.
The best songs on this album were 'Vigilante'which took some lyrical excerpts from horror movies, 'Millenium' which introduced the heavy guitar sound into FLA and 'Victim Of A Criminal' which just mixed all the sounds into one well mixed beat."
